Guinea Pig Conga

Evening all.
December is here and it's time for a new challenge at HLS Birthday, where it's always -


Here's my card to celebrate the festive season!

I love this guinea pig conga stamp from Colorado Crafts, so much fun to colour too.
I thought that the guinea pigs could easily be mistaken for hamsters so it was the perfect card to celebrate the lovely Darnell's birthday earlier in the year!

After stamping the conga line, I used Copics to colour and then added some clouds behind with an MFT stencil and a soft brush with Salty Ocean DI. The sentiment is from the same set but the ink I used for it was new, so very juicy and easily smudged, so I added some clear EP and heat set. My completed panel was trimmed and then added to an A6 side folding note card, simples.

I know it's a busy period for a lot of you but there are still birthdays to celebrate, I always feel sorry for December and early January birthdays as they tend to get lost in the celebrations around Christmas and the New Year! So why not make time and send a December baby some birthday love?!
